Kevin De Bruyne scored four goals as Manchester City beat Wolves 5-1 to secure three points clear of the top of the Premier League, while Chelsea cemented their top four spot and pushed Leeds deeper into relegation into third. Private.

City saw second-placed Liverpool tie on points with them following a 2-1 win over Aston Villa on Tuesday.

But De Bruyne’s dazzling display ensured Pep Guardiola’s side reacted decisively as the title race into the final game.

After De Bruyne put City ahead in the seventh minute from a Bernardo Silva cross, the leaders were shaken by Leander Dendoncker’s equalizer four minutes later.

But De Bruyne quelled Wolves’ hopes of a shock win as he completed a hat-trick with two more deadly shots in the 16th and 24th minutes.

He scored his fourth goal from close range in the 60th minute and Raheem Sterling made his mark on the demolition with a touchdown in the 85th minute.

The Belgian midfielder’s heroism means City need four points from their last two games to secure their fourth Premier League title in the past five seasons.

Guardiola heaped praise on De Bruyne, saying: “Unstoppable, excellent, great, excellent, perfect!

“He has the ability to create special things. He has to score goals and this season has been the most prolific he’s had since we’ve been together.”

If Man City can win at West Ham on Sunday, they will be six points ahead of Liverpool before Jurgen Klopp’s side play their next game of the tournament against Southampton on Tuesday.

City’s second goal in four days after Sunday’s 5-0 win over Newcastle also gives them a crucial seven-goal advantage over Liverpool on goal difference.

“If we win these games, we’ll win. Now let’s recover the players and the next final for us is West Ham,” said Guardiola.

Their most recent win was even more impressive as City were without injured defenders like Ruben Dias, John Stones and Kyle Walker for the rest of the season, with Aymeric Laporte hobbling in the second half at Molineux.

While Liverpool have maintained a breakneck pace in their pursuit of City since January, Guardiola’s side have faced the challenge.

After the draw with Liverpool on 10 April, Man City have won 5 consecutive matches, scoring 22 goals and conceding only 2 times.

– Clinical Chelsea –
Chelsea have come to the brink of qualifying for next season’s Champions League with a 3-0 win over struggling Leeds.

Thomas Tuchel’s side won for the first time since Todd Boehly’s consortium agreed a deal to buy Chelsea from Roman Abramovich last week.

Mason Mount opened the scoring in the early stages at Elland Road and Leeds suffered another blow when Daniel James was sent off.

Christian Pulisic scored Chelsea’s second goal after half-time and Romelu Lukaku scored the Blues’ first in four games.

Third-placed Chelsea are eight points ahead of fifth-placed Tottenham and will be guaranteed a top-four finish if Antonio Conte’s side fail to beat fourth-placed Arsenal on Thursday.

Fixing their worrying recent slump is the ideal preparation for Chelsea ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup final against Liverpool at Wembley.

“We accepted all the obstacles we faced, a physical team and an emotional stadium. We were strong from the start and deserved to win,” said Tuchel, revealer Mateo Kovacic could miss the final because of an ankle injury.

While Chelsea want to end the season in high form, Leeds is in danger of relegation.

Jesse Marsch’s army ranked third at the bottom of the table, after Burnley ranked fourth in goal difference.

Burnley have three games left to just two for Leeds, who host Brighton and travel to Brentford in matches that will decide whether their two top-flight seasons end with a return to the Championship.

Everton are two points ahead of Leeds after a 0-0 draw against relegated Watford.

Frank Lampard’s side have only lost once in their last six games to climb out of the relegation zone.

They also have a game in their hands in the battle for survival.

Jamie Vardy scored twice and James Maddison also scored as Leicester beat relegated Norwich 3-0 at the King Power Stadium to end a seven-game winless streak.
